    There is a simple solution to this. Use Bing.

    Exactly -- I camouflage my illicit activities by downloading copious amounts of porn

    Seriously, that's why they have watch lists: there's a veritable ocean of data, and although they can automate the search for keywords and voice signatures, the majority of intercepts still have to be hand sorted.

    I'm in Arkansas, but every six months or so there's some funkiness where Google thinks I'm in Australia. I get MUCH different search results then; some of it very useful, but it never shows up in the usual Google search.

    Google is *NOT* my friend...

    I'm not breaking any laws - I'm glad they are watching the rest of you

    You don't actually think that it stops there. The NSA listens to everybody everywhere they can. The US gov. has little respect for foreign borders and laws. In fact this thread has probably has probably tripped there automatic Echelon system and we are being watched even now. Is that a black 'copter I see on over there.

    Big brother is out there for real. Be afraid.

    so much for the land of liberty and freedom .
    The British and Canadian intelligence services do it as well. In fact, since each country's constitution forbids their respective intelligence agency from spying on their citizens, MI-6, NSA and CIRC have reciprocal collection services through the Echelon program, such that the NSA turns over British intercepts to MI-6, MI-6 turns over American intercepts to the NSA, etc.

    Google "Echelon" and/or Menwith Hill.

    By the way, Google, Ebay, Facebook, Yahoo, Amazon et al are tracking you through Flash supercookies. Which is why suggested keyword searches follow you from site to site. If you enable Flashblock is stops it (but makes most of those sites stop working).

    And apparently to communications external to US borders, irrespective
    of whether these enter US territory or not ...

    Don't think your occupiers (the English) don't do that too..... in their own way....
    And other things also.

    It's annoying, both when it IS done and when it is NOT done, but should be..... no winning that one, you are as bad off as anyone else.

There it is analysed in real time using deep packet inspection to determine what information it contains. If at all potentially interesting it is then subjected to increasing degrees of classification to see if it is worth really looking at closely.

    Naturally the vast majority of data can be discarded instantly but the small percentage that warrants further inspection is the checked for items like key words and phrases that might be of interest.

    This is all part of the Echelon System and applies to electronic communications that crosses the US border. It does not apply to communications that stay within the US but the catch is that internet doesn't care about borders. Data originating in the US and destined to locations in the US may often cross the border on its way, especially through Canada. That makes it legal for the NSA to intercept internal communications of US citizens.

    If you have a gmail account, you have an account with google..... they have you "pinned down'.

    What is the case if you have NO account with them, but casually use their search sometimes?

    Then it seems they have somewhat less to "pin down", particularly if your IP address is not static.

    naturally, a static IP means every single thing going through that address is tied directly to it, which means it can be "targeted" for ads of any sort related to the searches and sites visited from that address, as someone mentioned.

    When google finishes buying out yahoo and the Yahoo groups service, then there will be a lot more users of google, and the targeted ads will be drowning folks, because google will know just what to send... what a windfall THAT will be.
